This plane can be very powerful if you use boom and zoom against fighters, as it has a great armament of 2x 20mm cannons and 4x M2 brownings. In Tank and Ship Battles, this plane is also good, as it has the ability to carry lots of anti ground and ship payloads, like HVARs, 1000 lb bombs, Tiny Tims, and even a torpedo!

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
